Sugar Fruit Cups

I have seen pictures of these on pinterest, and I figured I didn’t need a recipe I could create them on my own! I used the cream cheese frosting I used for pumpkin bars.

Frosting:

  • 1 8oz. package of cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup softened butter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp milk

I used a store bought sugar cookie mix, and filled my muffin tins with them, I squished them down with a spice bottle to create a bowl with the cookie. Baked and mixed according to the package.

I had frozen berries in the freezer and topped the berries with this. I like the juice that comes with a defrosted berry.

The problem was I should of used MINI tins, the cookies came out so HUGE and it was hard for one person to eat. If I made them again, I probably wouldn’t use such a heavy cream cheese mixture,and definitely make smaller cups!!

Emoji Cookies

I was having an emoji party, where everyone was told to come dressed as an emoji. I picked the bride ( obviously). It was a great time, I thought the best dessert would be emoji cookies!

I used store bought sugar cookies I bought two mixes and made it according to the package. This was my first time attempting icing cookies and I was a bit nervous. I had a few pasty bags and tips.

Here is the recipe I followed for the icing: which I doubled

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons whole milk
  • 6 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 ½ teaspoon almond extract

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and milk until smooth.

Add in corn syrup, and 1 ½ teaspoons almond extract.  You can use vanilla extract if you wish; but almond really tastes the best here.

To be honest it was bit runny and I should of added more sugar but it was tasty!

I cut all the cookies into circles, with the exception of some triangles for the little poops. Which I pinched on the ends and top to make the curves of the poop.

First I covered all of the cookies with yellow icing, and some with “red” for the angry faces. The triangles were covered in brown.

I tried to make every emoji possible, I wish I took more pictures, but it was definitely fun to create all the different faces. I made pink and blue for accents, like the heart emojis or crying. They were all surprisingly easy to make! They would make a great gift for someone too!
